ELIGIBILITY
To be eligible for the AFL Rising Star Award, nominated players must be under the age of 21 at January 1 of a particular year and have played no more than 10 AFL games to the start of that season.

They must not have been suspended by the AFL or State League tribunals during the season (as with the Brownlow Medal, players found guilty of certain offences and fined or reprimanded by the Tribunal remain eligible to win the award).

In 2007, the AFL Rising Star Award was named in memory of former AFL Commission Chairman Ron Evans and the winner receives the Ron Evans Medal.

The first Rising Star honour was awarded in 1993 to Nathan Buckley of the Brisbane Lions.
